Washington January 29, 2017 – Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today released the following statement in reaction to the injunction issued against President Trump’s executive order on immigration and refugees:
“The Eastern District of New York last night made the right call by issuing a nationwide injunction barring the deportation of individuals who have been detained under President Trump’s unbelievable executive order.
“It’s clear that the president gave little consideration to the chaos and heartbreak that would result from this order and the court’s ruling rightfully took that into account.
“This ruling is a victory for American values—the values that countless Americans are defending in demonstrations at airports across this country. Standing against this discriminatory order is about standing up for this country’s guiding principles. To those who came out to LAX, SFO and San Diego airports, I stand with you.”
